106-year-old gets special "Best Dresser" award

A 106-year-old academic who has been recognised by Guinness World Records as the oldest person to have travelled around the world using public transportation has received a special "Best Dresser" award.

Saburo Shochi, an educator and professor emeritus at Fukuoka University of Education, yesterday received the honour at a ceremony for the 41st Best Dresser Award held in Tokyo.

"The key to fashion is to change your clothes every day," Shochi, who showed up in a yellow suit, said cheerfully, to big laughter.

"Humans start to age from the day they stop caring about being fashionable. There are many (examples like that) when I look around," Shochi said.
